The rapper and producer of hip hop known as Bugsy Jones has released his debut LP album, “F1rst Impression.” The full-length record contains 10 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 40 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the direction of the corporate music industry. Stylish, direct, and bringing aggressive amounts of party, “F1rst Impression” proves that Bugsy Jones has urban poetry for days and days.
Nashville, TN’s Bugsy Jones cites as main artistic influences B.O.B., Fleetwood Mac, Lupe Fiasco, E-40, Jadakiss, and Big K.R.I.T. His own style is built on razor-sharp lines and rhymes, balancing his lyric play with solid back beats and intriguing background melody lines.
Helping Bugsy Jones achieve the complete picture are several talents of the TN hip hop scene. In Jones’ own words:
“I appreciate Clevetta Anthony for featuring on this project, Dae Dae Da Great for providing the instrumentals to this project (and Fly Guy Slim for the “Getting My $ On” beat) and last but not least, Dj Wrightful for the production on this project … and YOU for listening.”
Outside this, “F1rst Impression” is all Bugsy. The tracks on his LP are all original to him.
“I’m too much of a writer to let anyone write for me,” he says. “I’ve always had a flare for wordplay, and to make them flow like water over a beat is just bliss to me.”
Asked to expand on the overall themes of “F1rst Impression,” Jones describes the record as largely autobiographical.
“I’ve experienced a lot in life,” he says, “and put a lot of it in my music.”
He has called his new album “a real emotional roller coaster.”
“As a fan,” says Bugsy Jones, “I love to hear an artist put together a good, full body of work. That’s what this project ‘F1rst Impression’ is. There’s something for everyone, and I feel the listeners will be pleased with the songs, production and wordplay on it.”
Jones himself has been characterized as “a charismatic artist with the lyrical finesse of a millennial wordsmith” and “a walking rhyming dictionary who’s fluent in Ebonics.”
